the deficit. most important of all, it is about energy independence for our country. it is about working with canada and producing energy in this country so that we get our energy here locally rather than having to get it from the middle east. that is what americans want. they want us to be energy secure in this country. to do that, we need to produce more energy like we are doing in my state of north dakota and montana across the border. movepipeline would mode -- that loyal as well as canadian oil. it is about producing oil here, or getting it from our closest friend and neighbor, canada, rather than being dependent on the middle east. classification you to have to wait on a pipeline, how safe israel transportation of these products versus pipeline transportation? is it.that we are becoming more energy secure. it is great. it is jobs and what people want. to go with that energy, we need infrastructure. that infrastructure includes pipelines as well as moving products safely by train or truck. the keystone xl will take 500 trucks a day off rose in western north dakota. it is a safety is

speaker, we are in a global competition, a global race on clean energy and innovation. in our efforts to witness race and ensure our place as the kingpin of the global economy, for decades to come we must support a secure, all of the above domestic energy supply that includes both newly abundant traditional fossil fuels as well as clean renewable energy. energy such as wind, solar, biomass, hydro, nuclear, and more. we simply cannot continue to rely on a single fossil fuel to power our economy. that is not wise, long-term policy. today i would like to highlight one of these abundant job creating clean energy sources. wind energy, one way to support this critical source of energy for our nation is the federal production tax credit. the credit that keeps electricity rates low and encourages development of proven renewable energy projects. this credit expired at the end of last year, and must be retroactively extended to foster job growth and promote a greener and cleaner environment for the next generation. the p.t.c., production tax credit, also creates jobs. in my district, the capita

,000,000,000 in energy subsidies to the ukraine because those subsidies are likely to be taken away because of an imf package. there is a real fear of what an imf loan package means, a structural adjustment package, huge cuts to the poorest in society to the sort we saw in greece and elsewhere, future unrest and the u.s. is quite a wear that when countries go down the road of imf loans, you can get even more unrest. another interesting thing about that energy subsidy is a lot of that money is going to end up in moscow because it's moscow who sells much of ukraine its fuel. in washington, they are quite a wear they are giving potentially a billion dollars to moscow. >> just how far is the u.s. supposed to go in supporting ukraine? at what point is it going to run up against opposition in congress? >> there is a lot of -- a lot of support for financial aid and financial loans to ukraine. however, the senate majority leader, harry reid said let's keep an idea on what europe wants. this is mainly a european issue. if europe isn't all for sanctions -- and they are not because they are scared of losing al

of reprocessing in order to, for example, provide domestic energy, nuclear energy plants. many countries in the world have nuclear energy. but only a handful actually process it themselves. most just decide to buy it already processed from abroad. we have agreements and we have arrangements with countries all over the planet that do that. only a handful actually retain the capacity to reprocess it or -- or -- or to enrich uranium or reprocess plutonium. when you see a country -- when you see a country announce that they are going to invest money, time and energy in developing a processing -- a reprocessing or an enrichment exaibilityd, that raises -- capability, that raises red flags and here's why. because while you only need a certain level of enrichment to be able to provide nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and a little bit of a higher level in order to be able to use it for medical isotopes, the exact same machines, the exact same facilities, the exact same scientists are the exact same runs that can also reprocess or enrich to an even higher level to use in a weapon. the story o
that all he is interested in is domestic energy for peaceful purposes. the problem is that's not what's happening. what's happening is that the united states, through the state department and this administration, i think de facto has already but if not are on the verge of agreeing to allow iran to keep in place its enrichment and reprocessing capabilities, and i'm going to explain to you why that's a problem. if that capability is still there, if they retain all the facilities necessary for enrichment and reprocessing, even if they agree to limit to to a certain level for now at any point in time in the future they can ratchet it back up and they can go on to develop a weapon. in fact, the design for a weapon is the easiest part unfortunately of all of this. the hardest part is reaching the technological capability to enrich uranium to a certain point so you can weaponize it. if you allow them to keep all the equipment, all the technology, all the scientists, all that infrastructure in place, then at any point in the future when they decide now it's time for a weapon, they can break o

of the biggest facters in bringing more jobs back is our commitment to american energy. the all-of-the-above energy strategy that i announced a few years ago is working and today america's closer to energy independence than we have been in decades. safe and ensures the responsible production of natural gas and cleaner electricity generation from fossil fuels. it creates new incentives to cut the amount of energy we place in our cars, trucks, homes and factories. it promotes clean energy in things like solar, by making permanent tax credits. and it continues to strength protection of our air, water, land and communities and addresses the threat of climate change. climate change is in fact -- is a fact and we have to act with much more urgency to address it because a changing climate is already harming western communities, struggling with drought and coastal cities dealing with floods. that is why i directed my administration to work with states, utilities and others to set new standards on the amount of carbon pollution our power plants are allowed to dump into the air. and why

[laughter] he is the energy minister, mr. speaker. will he clarify? is a habit of climate change deniers in this government? >> this is a new approach to prime minister's questions. you come to the house of commons and praise the prime minister for his commitment to climate change. [shouting] i like the new style but i thought -- i think this is much more refreshing. this government has a solid track record of cutting carbon, negotiating internationally, to of investing in nuclear, the biggest renewable energy program that we've seen in our countries history. for the first time in a long, we are on track to meet up renewable target. perhaps he would like to get up again and congratulate me for this excellent record on the environment. [shouting] >> the whole country will have heard he cannot answer the question about whether, about whether you need to believe in man-made climate change to be part of his government. he's gone from think

here is important. in congress we often focus our energy and attention on those issues that are most divisive and controversial. there are real substantive disagreements between the two parties and among the american people. but congress must do the hard things and every now and then we get an opportunity to do something easy. this should be easy. the reforms in this bill are low-hanging fruit. these are modest reforms supported by republicans and democrats alike. some of these changes merely codify sdemreck tiff orders issued by the -- executive orders issued by the last two democrat presidents. some of my colleagues have suggestions for improvement and have offered amendments to this bill. great. these will be discussed tomorrow in an open and transparent process. in fact, mr. speaker, every democrat amendment that was submitted has been included in this rule. i hope that my colleagues will join me in supporting this sensible legislation that had enhance transparency, accountability and awareness of federal mandates. i urge my colleagues to vote for this rule and the underlying bil

" when we look at ukraine it's kind of the tale of two markets: you've got the european market that has been very volatile based on the headlines coming out of russia and the ukraine and of course here in the u.s. we're mainly focused on this ridiculously cold weather. so, you put it together: we've got a cold war, cold weather, natural gas is going to continue to be crazy." natural gas futures spiked almost 4% yesterday. a budget blueprint for the u.s. is on the table. president obama's 4 trillion dollar proposal includes 56 billion dollars of investment spending for pre-k education, infrastructure, and job training programs. it raises taxes on wealthy americans and includes an
